TWENTYMAN: How Lions benefited from 2019 NFL Scouting Combine

07 March, 2019, 07:10 | Author: Greg Lawrence
  • Dolphins meet with Montez Sweat, the fastest defensive end in NFL combine history

The wacky world of the NFL Scouting Combine got even more weird when former Texas cornerback Kris Boyd was reportedly asked by a team whether both his testicles were intact.

Look, we have all sat through job interviews before.

The big bodies mentioned remain the sexy picks, three other receivers thrived on the field and proved to be more well rounded prospects, but the big bodies always go first in the draft, so they will be overshadowed by the three mentioned above.

If you're a fan of watching athletes cover 40 yards in less than five seconds, the National Football League combine is the ideal event for you.

This is seriously freaky and really doesn't make a ton of sense. Mississippi State edge rusher Montez Sweat set a combine record on Sunday, running the 40-yard dash in the fastest time in modern history for a defensive lineman: 4.41 seconds.

LeBron James takes vet moves to a new level vs. Clippers
The Los Angeles Lakers , beset by injuries and slipping further down the West's standings by the day, have accepted their fate. The Lakers face the Denver Nuggets and the Boston Celtics at home before embarking on a five-game East Coast trip next week.

"One insane question I can think of was, 'Do I have both of my testicles?'" Boyd said when asked about his experience at the week-long event, according to ESPN's Jeff Legwold.

The senior wide receiver out of Ohio State had a career-year in 2018.

Sweat had 53 total tackles, 11.5 sacks and one forced fumble last season with the Bulldogs.

The 2019 NFL Draft will take place between April 25 and April 27 in Nashville, Tennessee.
